Pronoun bio field and chat integration
Following up my comment on https://twitch.uservoice.com/forums/310210-discover/suggestions/42218083-pronouns-prefix
It would be great if there were a dedicated Bio field in which we could put our pronouns, and a chat feature similar to the functionality provided by https://pronouns.alejo.io/ to display pronouns right alongside names in chat. This could also be used to populate a tag-like display near the streamer's name.
Tags for streamers are a start, but I'd like to be able to consult someone's bio (if they choose to disclose pronouns) so I can refer to them properly when they're not currently streaming and be able to refer to viewers properly.
I have been working on spreading the link to this everywhere so hopefully Twitch will see this and implement this. It is such a small thing that would be so helpful and make everyone feel welcome and valid!
I agree with this, this will help in so many ways!!
yes, absolutely yes!
I think this suggestion is a "no-brainer" and should absolutely be part of Twitch. In addition, I would argue that this feature could be implemented relatively easily and quickly.
This could add an element to make chat a bit more interactive. It will be much easier to not misgender someone if they can make their pronouns know and easy accessible
I would love to properly address viewers when I stream. I can't see the alejo.io pronouns in OBS. Having them as part of or in tandem with a user's display name would be huge. Also, neopronouns should be included, so everyone who wants to identify themselves properly can.
There are multiple reasons why it's important to be able to see people's pronouns in chat:
They don't stop by often enough to memorize their pronouns
They only stop by a few times
Someone has too many viewers to remember all their pronouns
Not to mention the view from a chatter's perspective, where you'd have to be in a streamer's chat every minute of every stream and have a flawless memory to know all your fellow chatters' pronouns.
These are just a few of the many, but already make it quite apparent how needed pronouns in chat are.
It would be nice to see everyone else's pronouns easily and have that option easily accessible for any chatter.
With the addition of he/him, she/her, and they/them tags this only allows streamers to identify themselves, but with this -everyone- could share their identities. The three pronoun tags are also really nice, however there are so many other pronouns out there that are necessary for people to be able to identify themselves with.
